We do our best to make the organization of your trip as simple as possible, trying to meet your needs and prevent any possible obstacle.
Before your arrival in Florence – Orientation
Of course you will receive all the information you need about programs, prices and conditions concerning the registration, as well as, if required and possible, the documentation required to obtain the study visa for Italy.
If you need accommodation (or choose a Holiday including it), we will book the required type for you and you will find out the details about two weeks before your arrival.
At your arrival in Florence – Transportation
If you want or need it, you will be provided with an accompanied transit service from Florence stations or Airport to your accommodation, by a Europass staff member or – if you are staying with a host family – a member of the family.
You can choose this service directly at the moment of your enrolment.
